  • 1 tsp 1 tsp chili paste
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Trim and rinse the Brussels sprouts. Coarsely shred in a food processor or with a sharp knife. Place in a salad bowl.
  2. Mix olive oil, lemon juice/zest and salt and pepper. Pour over the Brussels sprouts.
  3. Let marinate for 10 minutes. Then add the spicy almond & seed mix immediately prior to serving.
  4. This salad as a side dish to meat, fish or a simple omelet.

Spicy almond & seed mix

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the chili first.
  2. Add almonds and seeds. Stir thoroughly.
  3. Salt and sauté for a few minutes more, but pay close attention as almonds and seeds are very heat sensitive. The oil should be hot enough for the spice flavors to develop, but the almonds and seeds should not be burned.
  4. Let cool and sprinkle over the salad before serving.

Tip!

For a shortcut, look for pre-shredded Brussels sprouts at your market.

    This is my new favorite way to eat brussel sprouts! I added some shredded parmesan cheese and used Superseedz, a spicy pumpkin seed blend, for convenience. SO good!

    Does this keep overnight?

    This salad is delicious! I have made it so many times. My husband even likes it and he is a very picky eater. I haven't had the pumpkin or sunflower seeds when I've made it so I substitute and put a little bit of chia seeds and it is still great. I'm sure with the pumpkin and sunflower seeds it would turn out even better.
